I used a LoRa-based [Blues Sparrow Development Kit] which has a passive
infrared (PIR) motion sensor on each sensor node. To allow the PIR sensor to see
into the trap, I cut a 1/2” hole in the lid of the Victor M333 Mousetrap. To
locate the circuit board securely, I cut four 1/8” holes to receive M3-threaded
Notehub doesn’t have native SMS alerts yet, but it does allow you to route messages to any other cloud services or HTTPS API endpoint that your heart desires. I used Twilio, an inexpensive SMS service, to send message to my phone when there is motion in the trap.
To correctly format the request for the Twilio HTTP API I followed the Blues Twilio SMS Guide and modified the JSONata expression to tell me which mousetrap (Garage, Basement, etc.) saw motion based on the unique ID of the Sparrow sensor node I affixed to each trap.
